considering plusnet, need speedtests


[link to this post]
 
Can plusnet FTTC customers run these speedtests and tell me if they as fast as your uk results?

speedtest.net - NL - hosted by ookla
speedtest.net - NL - nforce entertainment
speedtest.net - DE - hosted by vodafone.de
http://ipv4.sbg.proof.ovh.net/ and http://ipv4.rbx.proof.ovh.net/

I am mostly interested if performance is consistent between EU and UK so if the results are close to your uk speeds thats fine for me to just say that thanks, otherwise if dont mind please post the differences. Also traceroute to bbc.co.uk and voxility.ro would be appreciated thanks. Finally if speedtests are low if possible please try to retest off peak thanks.

Plusnet does seem the only uk FTTC isp to not charge the earth for a static ip and I do like how network techs are responding to customers directly as well so am currently seriously considering a move.

It's quite hard work finding these in the speedtest.net alphabetical dropdown list, if you post the full name as it appears I would be more inclined to do it!

Buying them out, although BT have already gave me an opt out because they have found a line fault on my line which they have refused to fix. Otherwise tho I am 4 months into a 12 month contract so would be MAC code then would owe them 8 months of the penalty fee. I wont be moving the line rental as well so penalty is just on the broadband side.

I didn't know there was a map view! I went to settings and the list is under Preferred Server.

Of course what the routing is like one day does not mean it is the same another day
